CLI's on WFNNB Accounts??

I'm just wondering how I should go about CLI's with a new WFNNB account I have with Express. I'm just kinda planning the year ahead....

 

I also want to make sure that they are done through SP's too!

 

Thanks all.

Re: CLI's on WFNNB Accounts??

You can request an increase online when you log into your account which are always soft pulls.  I believe you have to wait 4-6 months to request one if im not mistaken or you will get the "you do not qualify at this time" letter.

Re: CLI's on WFNNB Accounts??

Yea I haven't found any backdoor numbers to call.  I tried one of my cards at the 6 month mark and I got a letter saying that my account is not eligible for a CLI.  Even though I PIF each time I used it.  I'm not too happy with them but I will keep them open to see how they do at the one year mark.  But I have some pretty low limits with them like $150 for The Avenue and $300 Catherines.  What's ironic is that I have Victoria's secret and Woman Within both for $750.  All of these were opened using the shopping cart trick so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.  But I have other CCs that are 50 times the amount of my lowest WFNNB, which is now Commenity, cards.

Re: CLI's on WFNNB Accounts??

Guess it depends on the situation.  I have 3 wfnnb accounts opened up December of last year and received 2 increases on each.

 

Kingsize started at 250----450----650

Woman within 250----450----650

Victoria secret opened in march at 500, increased to 640 in July and last month to 940

 

All soft pulls requested by me thru the website.

Re: CLI's on WFNNB Accounts??

WFFNB has always been VERY slow in the beginning and 9 months sounds about right... After that it was fast and never had to ask!

 

and unlike most banks I have delt with, I have had WFFNB (Express) especially get a couple CLI almost back to back because the account was at limit before the increases.

Really...this is interesting to know. My CL is $1,000 right now so I doubt I'll actually ever charge that much, but of course, I wouldn't mind more CL so I wouldn't have to worry about UTIL much.

 

They have the button available on the website already...asks for Annual income. I guess I'll try at 6 months and see how it goes.
